Kemp turns election system worries into a political weapon

Democrat Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke helps his sister Charlotte erect a yard sign as they canvass door-to-door in Carrollton Texas

Suppressing the vote of the dead is probably a good idea if you want a free and fair election.

"This is electricity in the air like I haven't seen since the '16 big victory that we all had together", Trump told a Macon, Georgia, campaign rally for GOP gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp. Kemp was clearly afraid that his racist voter suppression tactics may not seal the deal for him, which is why his latest fear-mongering tactic was so laughable.

The race between Kemp and Abrams, who could become the nation's first African-American woman to be elected governor, has been close and contentious.

Citing a potential conflict of interest, Democrats, including former President Jimmy Carter, have unsuccessfully appealed for Kemp to step aside as secretary of state until after the election.

"[Kemp] made up a charge of hacking, a lie against the Democrat Party of Georgia".

Abrams is in a right race against Donald Trump-backed Republican candidate Brian Kemp.

In a statement on Sunday, Kemp's office said they had officially requested the FBI to investigate the matter. Still, Broce said the investigation into the state Democratic Party was justified.

Lion Air plane emergency signal day before fatal crash
In December 2014, an AirAsia flight from Surabaya to Singapore plunged into the sea, killing all 162 on board. It has been expanding aggressively in Southeast Asia, a fast-growing region of more than 600 million people.

That didn't stop Kemp's office from posting a notice on Georgia's Secretary of State website, which voters visit to check their registration status or find their polling place. While providing no details of the incident, besides that the alleged attempt failed, Brian Kemp's office did say that the federal authorities are investigating the claims. The Democratic Party of Georgia confirmed that Small was a volunteer with them, but said she was not involved in any hacking.

The state did not know that Small had received her information from Wright - and assumed Small had written the code herself - until ProPublica told them of the connection on Sunday evening.

The FBI declined to comment.

The state is one of just five that continue to rely exclusively on aged electronic voting machines that computer scientists have long criticized as untrustworthy because they are easily hacked and don't leave a paper trail that can be audited in case of problems. Immediately after the 2016 general election, Kemp declared that DHS tried to hack his office's network, an accusation dismissed as unfounded in mid-2017 by the DHS inspector general. The "scurrilous claims are 100 percent false", Georgia Democrats said, accusing Kemp of showing "another example of abuse of power". "RT if you think Abrams is TOO EXTREME for Georgia!"

Kemp's "exact match" verification policy, which stood to void the ballots of thousands of mostly minority voters, was just smacked down in federal court. Over 53,000 voter registrations are still pending because, according to Kemp's office, the applications do not match other government records.

Abrams, a 44-year-old Yale Law graduate and former state legislative leader, has run as an unapologetic liberal as she looks to establish Georgia as a legitimate two-party battleground ahead of the 2020 presidential campaign.
